Ahhh…Champagne. No wine is more versatile, or food-friendly. Yet it is much more. Champagne is how we celebrate during the holiday season, or recognize a job promotion. It refreshes and prepares the palate as an aperitif. Champagne’s cool, soothing bubbles quenches a drying thirst on a sultry summer afternoon. The mere act of uncorking a bottle is an event, marking the promise and anticipation of a special evening. At its best, Champagne is a match for the world’s finest red and white wines.

I believe I do know why the president skipped the black community. It is because he takes their votes for granted-probably with good reason. He received 96 percent of the black vote in 2008. His approval rating among blacks is currently at 88 percent.
